    One wallpaper I like from Sidewall.

    I installed Sidewall the other day, and there is one wall paper I really like because I can watch day and night coming. Take for example, this morning I did a screen shot as it is still dark out but the sun will be up in about 1/2 hour. I live in Mn in the USA. It is already light in Ny. on the east cost. See wallpaper.

    Slidewall. I was looking about for Sidewall.

    I really like this. I went for the fiery clock one. Looks stellar. Does it play nicely with lightDM when you login? NVM, I'll try it.

    Yes I think it is still a little buggy. I thought I would test it for a bit and see if I like it. so far I need to manual move it to the next step from the menu.
    EDIT: Wow it move all by itself. This is what it suppose to do.

    The problem I have is it doesn't set itself up after a reboot. So after I've logged in, I have to go to the tray icon and redo it. Shame, as it really is lovely indeed, and there are a ton of compatible .wcz files to play with. I'll keep hold of it though and see if it gets any updates. Cheers for the heads up. Looks particularly lovely with Unity.

    I was wrong. It does set itself up after a reboot. What's thrown me was getting to the login screen. It doesn't play with LightDM, so at the login screen it'll show you what was on screen the last time when you logged out or rebooted. After logging in it's fine. Shame that it doesn't update for the login screen, but it's still a fantastic program.
